tsRNAsearch: A pipeline for the identification of tRNA and ncRNA fragments from small RNA-sequencing data


Paul D Donovan Natalie M McHale Morten T Venø Jochen H M Prehn 

tRNAs were originally considered uni-functional RNA molecules involved in the delivery of amino acids to growing peptide chains on the ribosome. More recently, the liberation of tRNA fragments from tRNAs via specific enzyme cleavage has been characterized. Detection of tRNA fragments in sequencing data is difficult due to tRNA sequence redundancy and the short length of both tRNAs and their fragments. See the full publication here.
